Just got the weirdest chat message.
Person asked if I was liking SG1 and SGA. I said yup I love it!
Then they said not to watch SGU because it’s shit. I said I’m planning on watching it and will make my own decisions on whether I like it or not.
“K nice knowing you then,” they replied.
Seriously guys, I know SGU divides some of you but don’t do this. Don’t do this to anyone. I’m going to watch it and I may hate it. But it may also end up being my favourite. Let me decide this for myself.
That said, the response I have had during my stargate watch has been overwhelmingly positive and it wouldn’t be half as fun without you all interacting along the way ❤️
I thought SGU was entertaining and exciting, but obviously it diverted from the classic Stargate setup.
It’s exactly like Star Trek Discovery. They had to modernize the show and come up with something new. Some fans don’t realize that the only way to keep getting new content, or to bring new people in to view the old, is to try and make something new.
Let’s be real: Had SGU got more seasons they would have eventually, inevitably, start to accept it and like it. People just don’t like change, although they probably deep down realize you can’t keep making new shows exactly the same as the old ones.
Also, gatekeeping fans are the worst. The person said bye because you even entertained the idea of watching a new spin-off of your fav show? Rude and strange.
